Fitzpatrick Family History
Fitzpatrick Name Meaning
Irish: occasionally this may be a genuine Anglo-Norman French patronymic meaning ‘son of Patrick ’ but more often it has been adopted as an Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Giolla Pádraig ‘son of the servant (i.e. devotee) of (Saint) Patrick’ (see Kilpatrick ).
